Art from the soul in war

As an international painter and artist I feel a vital need to be part of the global outreach of my amazing country. Through the unimaginable pain, the tears and the intensity of emotion, in my paintings, which are distributed in the world.

All through the night of emotions, grief and terrible loss, erupts from the aching soul filtered through to the most difficult and painful feelings.

And people from all over the world, can feel together with me, the intensity of pain and emotion, through the paintings. They cry with me and try to comfort and strengthen, it's an amazing feeling…

I get tons of responses, from all over the world. Reinforcements and a firm stand by our side and by our wonderful people and it's so amazing!!!!

It's amazing every time, how much art is an international language, that crosses borders and sectors.

Naomi Fuchs is an internationally renowned multidisciplinary painter and artist who has already had time to exhibit in many exhibitions in Israel and around the world, whether in Italy, Japan, the United States, and of course Holon.

Fox lives in the neighborhood of H-300 and above. She started spinning at the age of three, and has never stopped since. She graduated from Kogel High School, studied art at the Avni Institute and later at the Vital Center, which over the years became the multidisciplinary Shenkar College of Art.

The main part of Fox's art revolves around graphic design, with which she illustrates and draws portraits, and in the distant past she was even the cartoonist for Maariv for Youth, my studio at home, and I sell paintings in Israel and all over the world, but now all my focus is on the murdered, she tells Yediot Holon.

"On Black Sabbath, first of all I was shocked, I couldn't create for a week, usually my muse doesn't allow me to stop or stop, but like all the people of Israel we all lost our appetite, and certainly also the ability to paint, but after a week I realized there was no choice, I started to pick myself up and the first thing I did was to create portraits of the fallen people, who simply touched my heart with their stories.'

The first photo was of Amit Mann, a paramedic who was besieged for six hours in a clinic in Bari and treated the wounded, begging for the security forces to come, until the terrorists broke into the clinic and shot her and everyone there.

"I know her sister, and as I heard about Amit, I created a painting of her in memory of her based on her picture and showed it to her sister. She was shocked, very excited and posted it on.'

"Now people are starting to come to me from all over the country, relatives and ask for portraits of their loved ones. Before I did it without asking.

So far I have created five fallen and soldiers killed in battles. I continue with it with all my might, and want to immortalize these important people through emotion, I want to strengthen them in memory.

Fox says that just this week she was contacted by someone who just found out that her friend was murdered at a party, and she ordered the painting, because she wants to pay tribute to the family.

Fox's creative process begins through a still image of the victim: "I take the image, scan it and process it on the computer. After that, she prints on a canvas up to a meter in size and paints on it again with acrylic.

Fox takes about two days to finish each painting, and if there are other families of fallen or murdered people who would like portraits of their relatives, they are invited to contact her through her website or by phone that appears on the website.
